We’re back! Charged up and ready to rock 2016 so damn hard. This is Rise Feature Friday. If you love local small businesses, non-profits, artists, and advocacy groups, this is your weekly tradition. If you’re an avid instagrammer, we’re keeping our eyes peeled every week for your best shots and featuring them here and sending the top six to The Public.

We’re hoping everyone got some new toys over the holidays and hits the streets with them, using #RiseBFLO for all of your uploads.

We’re determined to make Buffalo better. So this week, we wanted to shine a light on a very new company that also incorporates that mantra into their mission. Main & Allen has designed some unique and boldly Buffalo prints. For every sale, they make a donation. Here’s founder Chris Keller to tell you more:

Main & Allen is a “Do Good” design company. We design minimalistic prints for any modern home. For every print we sell, we donate $5 to an inner city school in need. Funds go towards school supplies, learning tools, libraries and anything that classrooms may need.

While this playlist looks a little bit random, all of these songs have a common theme. Trying to be the best person you can be while finding your passion and caring for things greater than yourself. That’s what we’re trying to do with Main & Allen, and hope some of these tunes can inspire you to join us on our journey to help give every child an equal opportunity to learn.

Onto the Instagram games. Seems like a lot of cameras were charging up and waiting for some snow! Really really great stuff this week, Buffalo. Making this part of the job easy and fun. Enjoy, and if you’ve got no 2016 resolution, it should be to follow every new account you see on Feature Friday this week. Finally, if your business needs some publicity, we’re your team to make it happen. Not just Feature Fridays, we do ongoing projects, parties, and more. Hit us up at risecollaborative@gmail.com.
